On Thursday November 5th 2009 we will be making an operational change to our HealthVault Developer (PPE) environment and cleaning up certain items that have data within their <other_data> element.


The following items may be removed during this effort: ExerciseSamples, GeneticSnpResults, File, PersonalImage, PasswordProtectedPackage, data uploaded from devices, and other items whose <other_data> elements have been used to store application specific information.


This event will cause no downtime, and the HealthVault Developer (PPE) environment will remain available.  However, you will need to recreate/re-upload any such data that you require for testing purposes.


We want to take this opportunity to remind you that HealthVault-PPE.com is a development and test environment only and it is not to be used to store personal information.
